Pros

Good pay and benefits Relaxed atmosphere Good people Lots of opportunities for travel to foreign countries that most people don't get (Afghan., Iraq) Job security Looks good on a resume On-site gym

Cons

Report process is pretty annoying Not sure if all reports are very meaningul or if anyone really even cares Bad people (just a lot of weird people) I doubt you learn as much as private industry Parking lot to desk is about 10 minutes

Advice to Management

Make sure the work is meaningful and will have an impact before deciding to report. Hire more cool people or more smart people. Currently , there are a lot of nerds that aren't even smart.

    It's an "OK" place to work, but it could be so much better!...and it used to be a better place to work.

    Pros

    Diverse organization with a great mission, protecting the warfighter. Ample opportunity for advancement and a committment to employee development.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs and not enough indians. Frequently, program offices are 1 deep. Additionally, the organization is fragmented and various components seem work against other compoents, especially when leadership agendas are not aligned.

    Advice to Management

    Live up to the motto on the DoD OIG Intranet site "A Diverse Organization Working as One Team", and hold Senior Exectives and middle managers accountable when they fail to demonstrate that attitude.

    My experience at the OIG was very interesting and disappointing.

    Pros

    Interesting work Opportunity to make a difference

    Cons

    Claims to be family oriented but lacks flexibility and understanding for working mothers. Senior management lacks fairness and objectivity, and down right ruthless if they dont like you. The good ol boy network is still in place.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate entire Auditing division to include the Deputy IG.
